Nature surrounds this retreat/lodge with tranquil serenity and fresh, clean mornings to have your coffee sitting on the deck looking out at the river, or at the dock, watching the fish jumping and eagles flying overhead.

Don your waders and walk out into the river from the dock and cast a line or two, or contact one of the local guides for a fishing experience of a life time.

It's a must to take a canoe or kayak from the dock, up or down the gentle flowing Brule river viewing the elegant, old log homes built by original residents from the turn of the last century.

Begin at Stones Bridge and take a leisurely, 4 hour canoe trip, through an uncut natural northern pine forest that was the once the Voyageur's highway to the Mississippi and beyond, via the St. Croix River. The "trip down from Stones" is dotted with small rapids here and there and passes "Cedar Island" a stately, turn of the century, fishing camp, visited by several past presidents.

Step just outside the back door and take a long leisurely walk, ski or snow shoe, on one of the many nearby hiking trails or just head out into the woods. Drive to one of the many, near-by trail heads on the scenic North Country Trail or Brule State Forest hunter walking trails.

There are many area lakes. Near by Lake Nebagamon has groceries and restaurants, a swimming beech and boat landings. Drive north of Brule township 13 miles to the mouth of the Brule on the sandy shore of Lake Superior.

This vacation retreat beacons you to stop and relax and be mystified by the awe-inspiring, 300 year old Norway and White pine forest that surrounds you, while also enlivening you to get out and enjoy some of your favorite outdoor activities in one of the most enchanting places on earth. It's one of those places that you may just get out of your box and hug a tree.
